We love our simple life. I am glad to meet so may other RV Mutants. We thought we were alone.
RV Mutants Unite!
As the PRESUMPTIVE RVM136, it would be great to know your names & where you are from (or FullTime )...

We are Richard & Ann from Arkansas & we extend a very warm Mutant welcome once you declare that "The Journey is the Destination"...

So true! A first for RVM GCs -- no adverse weather.

Wayne offered us the use of his driveway but we'd get nosebleeds from the elevation change walking from the kitchen to the bedroom, so that's out.

Although we could even it all out for the north to south ramble by holding a GC in Bozeman MT in January and I could suggest Bear canyon Campground as a venue. Hockey could be added to the mutant Olympics, Bobsled, Pairs and Single Figure Skating, and maybe Jam can Curling? What say you lot???
Possum, Possum... you just don't understand.... Texas gets in the hundreds in the rest of the year when RVM0 is making his rounds... Heck, Steve's party in Rockport was kind of cold and rainy in November, and that's coastal in the gulf down by Corpus Christie....While that's not so bad for mutant mega meals if there's a building with heat to meet in to eat...Poor Steve was out there with his smoker in the cold n rain trying to smoke a bunch of really tasty grub for us... Most of the mutants tend to be sun/heat seekers...

Stevo, how do you manage to stay so tight to the leading edge of RV technology? Don't answer. We have stolen so many of your secrets already!
Look forward to the smoker and distillery in your little tag-along. I'll find you a long pull thru.

My choice also. Could go a full year without needing a jacket.
Back in California again getting the house fixed up to get sold.
Will be back on the rainbow May 24.
Many ooms for our friend that need them, and Mooms for those with rig
problems.

Curious, I went online to see just where Steve and Annie can travel with his new toad. It looks like Annie may have to do some of the toad and cooker driving. But! It also means I could add a trailer behind Smarty and go up some of these mountains at 35 mph instead of 50.

So in 28 of the 49 RVing states (Hawaii omitted) some form of triple towing is allowed. It looks like the east coast is mostly against the idea.

Triple towing is allowed in the following states:

Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
California
Colorado
Idaho
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Maryland
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nebraska
Nevada
New Mexico
North Dakota
Ohio
Oklahoma
South Dakota
Tennessee
Texas
Utah

Wow, only two posts and RV Mutants gets to be #2. Just declare the journey is the destination and I'm sure you will be assigned a number. AND...don't pay any never mind to those who say they don't like my theme song. It's wonderful.

Denis, don't be putting me in a sleigh and I'm not fat, I'm just round.

For good reason, if you've even been on east coast roads, there isn't enough room on a lot of them for that type of vehicle setup. Heck, there's a road near my house where a tractor trailer (stupidly) tried to go down and got stuck on a curve because he couldn't fit through it. The following week there were signs stating no vehicles over 25' were allowed on that road
